After editing a post in the iOS app, the final preview window shows only about an inch of text below the title, rather than the complete post. This began when I downloaded the iOS app version, so I'm wondering if it's a bug. I'm using an iPad 2 running iOS 9.1. It happens on questions and answers, with and without pictures, and on a variety of SE sites.

The top row of my pictures show the original question, then the edit screen after editing. Below that on the left is the edit preview, with the finished version after submission next to it. Click on them for full-screen views.

I reworked some stuff about post resizing to improve the scrolling experience and forgot to connect it to the preview screens.

  • Thanks very much Brian, but now I can't open the app! Every time I select the icon, it opens for less than a second, then closes back to my iPad home screen. I can tell it's trying, so I feel sad for it :) – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 25 '15 at 1:07
  • @Sue :( I'll debug in the morning. – Brian Nickel Nov 25 '15 at 1:10
  • No problem! Have a good night! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 25 '15 at 1:12
  • @Sue You should be able to download again. We had an expired provisioning profile. – Brian Nickel Nov 25 '15 at 17:37
  • Hi Brian! Thanks for explaining what went wrong. I like learning things, so I'll look that up. Unfortunately I still can't open it! I checked to see if I could get it from the app store instead, but that version is 1.4.0, dated September 24. Do you have a link I can plug into Safari so I can update my usual way? Thanks! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 25 '15 at 18:10
  • I'll send you an email. – Brian Nickel Nov 25 '15 at 21:37
  • Got it, thanks. It's much better, with very complete and pretty previews! Strangely, with some questions, the app just closes when I ask it for the preview. So far it's happened with two questions, both on the same site, Seasoned Advice. I've tried it on a number of sites and can't replicate. Unless there's a reason for that which makes sense to you, I'll do some research into different variables and update the report later. I'll start with a re-boot, which might solve the whole problem!! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 26 '15 at 0:23
  • I'm sorry to say the reboot didn't help. It doesn't happen every time, but on a number of both questions and answers, at various sites, choosing the edit preview causes the app to close. Since I now have, and it's not the bug reported in this question, should I just submit a new bug report? Thanks! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 27 '15 at 21:50
  • @Sue definitely. I saw it once too. – Brian Nickel Nov 27 '15 at 23:04
  • Here you go! Let me know if you need more details. Thanks! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Nov 28 '15 at 17:56
